Purple coolant?

I checked my coolant level in the radiator yesterday and noticed it was a purple color.Is this extended life or conventional type?It actually seemed to have a rust tint also which concerns me at 2200k further more with an all aluminum engine with plastic and aluminum radiator where could the rust color come from?Anyone else noticed this?

It's redish orange not purple....It's called Dexcool and everything is just fine. It is extended fill.....good for 100,000 miles.

Royal Purple has an additive called "purple ice" It is Royal Purples version of Redlines Water Wetter. It is purple in color. Don't know if this helps.
